    The scientific activity pertains with the design, synthesis and characterization of functional materials for heterogeneous catalysis, environmental issues and thermal energy storage applications.
    In the last decade studies were devoted at optimization of catalyst materials and process variables aiming at the synthesis, by Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition, of Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) with high yield, selectivity and crystalline quality. Through catalytic process hybrids CNT/clays and CNT/oxide were also prepared and composite materials with significant electrical properties.
    Finally, many studies on CNT application have been developed ranging from catalysis in which CNT have been used as "metal-free" catalysts in oxidation processes of pollutants and as useful materials for decontamination of water from oil pollutant.
    Thermal Energy Storage process have been extensively studied with special attention to thermochemical process useful to store thermal energy and release it when it is required, thanks to a reversible chemical reaction. Reversible dehydration/ hydration reaction of magnesium hydroxide has been extensively studied starting with the investigation of the influence of the magnesium hydroxide preparation condition on the thermochemical behavior and durability of the material upon many cycles. Aiming at improving the thermal conductivity of TES material, that is its efficiency in keeping and releasing heat, hybrid materials were prepared using exfoliated graphite, CNT, graphene oxide as conductive material in intimate contact with active TES material.

    Scientific activity results are reported in 121 research papers in peer reviewed indexed journals ( source SCOPUS), 4 patents and more than 150 communications to international and national conferences.
